Objective of the Project

Impacts of important road corridors on the surrounding cities 

The project focuses on measuring of air quality on a route within the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) – Eastern and East Mediterranean Corridor (section connecting the state border CZ/DE – Prague) and preparing 3 action plans to reduce the impact of air pollution.

The surroundings of the corridor are polluted by pollutants from road, rail and water transport. After an analysis of the affected area, three main urbanized localities were selected on this route: Praha-Zdiby, Mělník and Ústí nad Labem. Each municipality has a different composition of emission sources. It is therefore desirable to determine the share of traffic in air pollution in these localities. All these municipalities struggle with increasing road transport (e.g. plans to build new logistic centres), do not have sufficient measured data to adopt binding measures for their cadastre to regulate the construction activities and plan, with main focus on air quality and improvement of the environment.
